    Me too! What was it??
     
  6. a guy that just joined ebay today selling over 170 high end instruments starting bid on each of $20
     
  7. As much as people bash the bay, it's good to know such an obvious scam is not tolerated. If they lose their reputation as a "safe' place to do business over the net, they suffer.

    For every scammer that gets rumbled, another 500 get through. Its usually the members that report stuff cos Epay are unwilling to pay lots of staff to sit round the clock watching for scams.

    But whether buying from Epay, or from your local parish freeads, as always - caveat emptor.
